2013 Choice Lehigh Valley IronPigs Update #16 Adam Morgan

Phillies 6, Marlins 3
Game 92 - Friday Night, July 17th in Philadelphia
Record - 30-62

One Sentence Summary:  The fine pitching of Adam Morgan and Jeff Francoeur's three-run pinch-hit home run sealed the 6-3 win for the Phillies.

What It Means:  On the day it was announced that Aaron Nola would make his Major League debut this Tuesday, the Phillies opened up the second half of the season with a much needed win.

What Happened:  The Phillies took advantage of several Marlins miscues in this game.  In the decisive eighth inning, Maikel Franco broke a 2-2 tie when he lofted a ball to the outfield that was completely misplayed by center fielder Cole Gillespie.  Odubel Herrera scored the Phillies third run of the game on the play, and a few batters later Francoeur hit his home run.

Featured Card:  Morgan continues to impress, as he cruised through 6 1/3 innings allowing two runs on four hits.  This is one of four cards in my collection featuring Morgan with the Triple-A IronPigs.
